WP7 update to land in early March, copy-and-paste and CDMA on board
Steve Ballmer didn't hesitate to drop a bomb during his keynote address and announced that the much-anticipated first Windows Phone 7 update will go live in "early March".

It will pave the way for CDMA WP7 phones, and also the much-needed copy-and-paste funcntion. No real surprises here, as this has been discussed for weeks and months, but it's nice we have an official date that's mere weeks away.

Furthermore, Steve Ballmer, the well-known energetic CEO of the Redmond-based company, told us what to expect further down the road with Windows Phone 7 - and it does sound intriguing, since he said multitasking and a browser based on Internet Explorer 9 are to arrive "later this year", as well as Twitter integration (within the People Hub) and support for Microsoft Office documents in the cloud via Skydrive.

2011 will surely be an exciting year for all WP7 users. Stay tuned to PhoneArena for more news from MWC are on the way.

WP7 keep on truckin'!!! This is the steam that was missing from MS, now pair all these capabilities with some nice hardware! WP7 is getting better and better day by day.

wp7 should've been better and better at launch... they had many years to make the os and all they did is copied the bad stuff from iOs and omitted everything from winmobile 6-6.5 that was intelligently implemented!!! Thats terrible thinkin, but im gonna stick wit my optimus7 till the update. If that doesnt prove effective, gonna sell it and forget it...

Really looking forward to the nodo update and others. Once office and skydrive truly integrated and there's a WP7 (metro) style tablet available iOS is really going to struggle. You know iPhone can't even handle basic functions like calling a number with bracketed 0's. They've had 4 generations to get it fixed. WP7 has it sorted at launch and all the other functionality we want is in its way! Keep up the good work and keep up with your user requests MS. Android, by the way is pointless and featureless.
